Working on the Fantasia Dollhouse: Gothic Door in Progress

Hello! *waves a bandaged hand* I managed to cut myself rather spectacularly as I was carving one of the columns for this door, so I guess it will be a bit silent here while it heals... serves me right for carving as I talk and watch TV, holding it in my hand instead of pressing it against some firm surface!

This door is meant for a balcony archway, to close it so that light couldn't get in and destroy the fabrics and furniture. Dad cut and sanded the base for me; the carving is by me. Now this is the second time I ever tried to carve anything, so it's not perfect and it's far from done - but I'm quite happy with how it's going (except for the gory bits). It opens up possibilities...
It's going to be painted white.

Now, the window installed in the room it belongs to is Georgian (I think - so the seller said) and it kind of seems out of place there... and also a bit plain.

 - I wonder whether to take it out and exchange it for a white Gothic one (which I'd have to make). Something like this maybe:

Throwback Thursday: Lolita Skirts My Sis Made in the Past

These are some of the first Lolita projects my sis had made - most of them as commissions, one for me (though I managed to snatch one up again when it appeared for sale on a sales comm, haha).
Pink and white chiffon; embroidered magnolia flower on the waistband.

One of my first Lolita skirts. Still gorgeous after nearly a decade of wearingXD
Yards and yards of pink chiffon ruffles... like cotton candy!:-)
Mint sparkly tulle - I feel like a mermaid princess in it, hahaXD
How do you like them? Let me know in the comments:-)
